Trustees - The Children's Society

Job Reference: USMU
Closing Date: Monday 15 Jul 2019

The Children’s Society has a vision of a country where children are free from disadvantage.

This is why we are committed to ‘disrupting the cycle of disadvantage’, to free the next generation from the social issues of today, which cause so many young people to feel unsafe, unloved or insecure. We do this by listening intently to young people and how they need us to root our work in their real life experience and to deeply understand their challenges, and work with them to try to find the fixes that work, and last.

We are not starry-eyed dreamers. We know as well as anyone that there are no simple solutions to the complex and ugly problems young people face – such as criminal and sexual exploitation and mental health issues. This is why we work with politicians, policy makers, young people themselves and other organisations, to bring people together to find practical solutions, and to make a better future a reality.

Partnership is at the heart of our approach. We are increasingly known for our cutting edge and innovative solutions, developed with the insights drawn from research and policy work based on the hard evidence of our powerful frontline work.

We seek four new realists with vision, buckets of experience and loads of insight to join our excellent Trustee Board, to provide governance oversight and guidance for our impact-led strategy. These new Trustees will be individuals of exceptional calibre and will help us fight for change, and deliver our vision of a better country for vulnerable children and young people.

The first will have extensive senior operational experience in Children’s Services; the second will have experience of Risk, Audit and Compliance oversight in an organisation of at least the same size and complexity as The Children’s Society; the third will bring high-level expertise and relevant demonstrable experience of supporter engagement strategies in the charity sector (or comparable environment), and the fourth will have executive leadership experience in either the not for profit or private sector.

The Children’s Society recognises the enormous benefits of keeping a diverse board. We actively and warmly encourage applications therefore from a broad and deep range of backgrounds and experiences.

Saxton Bampfylde Ltd is acting as an employment agency advisor The Children’s Society on this appointment. For more information, including how to apply, please refer to the website of Saxton Bampfylde, www.saxbam.com/appointments using reference USMU. Applications should arrive no later than noon on Monday 15th July 2019.

NORTH OF ENGLAND | SUNDERLAND
CFO/Financial, Corporate Governance, Growth Management, Legal/Compliance, Non-Executive/Trustee, Risk
Deadline date: 26th July 2019

Northern Lights Learning Trust (NLLT) is aiming to grow from its current three schools, including potentially becoming a sponsor multi-academy trust (MAT) in due course. It also aspires to open a Free School. In order to achieve its aim, the trust seeks to recruit up to three new board members, possessing skills in Finance, Law and Risk, along with proven experience of board-level working, to help guide its strategy and growth. Candidates of all faiths, and of none, are welcome to apply. Board meetings are held at Marcross Drive, Sunderland.

About the trust

The trust originated with one successful school, Benedict Biscop, which converted to academy status and then multi academy trust shortly after.

Now comprising three schools, two of which are based in Hartlepool and a further one in Sunderland, there are two Church schools, Benedict Biscop CE Primary Academy and St Peter’s Elwick CE Primary School, and one non-faith school in the trust, Hart Community Primary School. The trust is currently applying to become an approved sponsor and has a Free School application to submit, with a proposed school to be situated in Newcastle.

The mix of faith and non-faith schools forms part of the distinctiveness of the trust and the schools within it. We are looking to expand both faith and non-faith schools.

The trust has a teaching school and a National Support school alongside a National Leader of Education and a number of well-deployed Senior Leaders of Education.

NLLT places school improvement at the heart of the trust, ensuring that all pupils, schools and staff are better for being part of the trust. The CEO sits on a number of key regional boards, such as Schools North East and the Durham Diocese Board of Education. The trust also works closely with the Department of Education meeting regularly with Ministers and advisors.

Plans for the future

The key challenges for the board over the next 12-24 months are:

  1. Growth - to continue to grow the trust to approximately 10 schools so that it is a viable size to ensure sharing of good practice is most effective and partnership working is maximised;
  2. Curriculum reviews - to ensure the curriculum meets the needs of all learners in all areas to provide a holistic education, as judged in the Ofsted new inspection framework;
  3. Finance - in a challenging financial environment for schools, the trust is identifying ways to maximise funding and efficiencies for all schools in the trust alongside finances to ensure the central services provided are most effective for schools.

Over the medium term, the trust is looking to establish itself, having grown from one school to three in the last year. It additionally seeks to develop its vision, maximising effective partnership working across the trust. The trust’s Free School application is currently awaiting submission and the trust is currently applying to be a sponsor.

Trust ethos & values

The Northern Lights Learning Trust vision:

‘…we want every child, in all of our academies, to be inspired to learn as individuals, to have high aspirations, to relish challenge, and develop a sense of responsibility demonstrating a high level of respect for others.’

Background on academy trusts

Academy schools, which are charities run independently of local authority control, now account for 74% of secondary schools and 31% of primaries – and their number is growing all the time.

Many of these schools are grouped together as multi-academy trusts (MATs). There are currently 980 multi academy trusts of 2+ schools. If the schools are to fulfil their potential, the trusts need non-executives (known in charity law as trustees) to bring a wide range of skills and experience to help guide strategy, ensure their ambitions can be soundly financed and keep their schools up to the mark delivering for their pupils.

“Academy boards must be ambitious for all children and young people and infused with a passion for education and a commitment to continuous school improvement that enables the best possible outcomes. Governance must be grounded in reality as defined by both high-quality objective data and a full understanding of the views and needs of pupils/students, staff, parents, carers and local communities. It should be driven by inquisitive, independent minds and through conversations focused on the key strategic issues which are conducted with humility, good judgement, resilience and determination.” Source: Governance Handbook, Department for Education (2017)

Over 100,000 babies are born needing neonatal care in the UK each year. That's 1 in 7 babies, or over 300 babies every day. Would you like to make a difference to the lives of some of the UK's most vulnerable babies and their families?

About Us

Bliss is the UK's leading charity for premature and sick babies: our vision is that every baby born premature or sick in the UK has the best chance of survival and quality of life.

The Role

We are recruiting 2 new Trustees to join our passionate and committed Board, to support the charity's governance and overall strategic direction.

Why apply?

As a trustee you will join the charity at a critical time as we have recently launched our new three-year strategy, in our 40th anniversary year.
